Overview

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

About the Author

William Wilkie Collins (1824 - 1889) was an English novelist, playwright and short story writer. His best-known works are The Woman in White (1859), No Name (1862), Armadale (1866) and The Moonstone (1868). The last is considered the first modern English detective novel.

Born into the family of painter William Collins in London, he lived with his family in Italy and France as a child and learned French and Italian. After his first novel, Antonina, was published in 1850, he met Charles Dickens, who became a close friend, mentor and collaborator. Some of Collins's works were first published in Dickens' journals All the Year Round and Household Words and the two collaborated on drama and fiction.

Collins was critical of the institution of marriage and never married; he split his time between Caroline Graves, except for a two-year separation, and his common-law wife Martha Rudd, with whom he had three children.

Rosepetal to Lilywolf! Read now!<p> Okay, first off, I'm super duper grounded. Yay me. It's not entirely my fault, but that's all my stepmother will believe &gt;.&lt; Okay, if I happen to be gone for over four months (August? bad with months...), then please find a permanent rp'r for Rosepetal and Lavapaw. In the meantime, can you please find temporary rp's for those two? I do not believe it's fair for them to &quot;not&quot; be around for several months and months. Laramie (stepmother) has taken my nooks, iPod, CD player, everything, from me for at least a few months. I &quot;stole&quot; (more like did my sister's homework) my older sister's biology homework and so now everything around me went downhill ever since. Can't believe it's only been a week and a half. If Comet is back, do tell him I hope to speak to him again soon and tell him to tell his sister that I can't use my email for some time either. Sorry and thank you.</p> <p> ~Rose</p>

Crystal padded to Lily and motioned her to follow. She quickly began to talk. &quot;I'm pregnant. A tom, he called himself Elre and he attacked me. I don't want this but I don't know what to do. I'm scared.&quot; (Super rushed, school almost over :/)
